I made a lot of test calls with herrie's patch yesterday and results are quite good. Over about 50 outcoming calls, I had no reset if I let the screen on when I take the phone to my ear. I wanted to try whether turning the screen off before doing so (as the proximity sensor logic would do before patching) had an effect on reboot, and the answer seems to be yes. If I try turning the screen off just after dialing while I'm waiting for the other side to answer, I cannot make 5 successive call : I always have a reset very shortly after the call is answered (5-10 sec max I guess). So maybe the problem does not come from the proximity sensor itself but from the consequence (screen off or maybe something caused by the screen off ?).
I have to confirm that making more tests, trying incoming calls too. Maybe someone else want to try that ?
I noticed that even if you don't turn the screen off manually, it goes off after the regular timeout anyway and I did not have any reboot due to that (though it may not be significant because I did not wait enough at each call to let the screen go off). Maybe the problem comes from the screen being off very early in the call, when the call is answered ?
